00:03[~]cmantito is listening to: Within Temptation - Stand my Ground
00:03[~]cmantito hugs his /itunes
00:04<taupehat>I like my song better =P
00:04<cmantito>yet I have no idea what your song is.
00:04[~]taupehat chortles
00:06[~]fo0bar is currently listening to: A computer room full of hot noisy servers
00:07[~]taupehat is actually listening to the local NPR station, which is kind enough to put on a punk rock show on Saturday nights =]
00:08<@mikegrb>hah
00:09<fo0bar>heh, our NPR itation is about 80% jazz
00:09[~]mikegrb is listening to npr via satelite
00:09<fo0bar>err station
00:09<fo0bar>I wish we had an all-news NPR station
00:09[~]mikegrb laffs at fo0bar
00:09[~]mikegrb has two all talk npr channels
00:10<fo0bar>is caker around?
00:10<@mikegrb>don't believe so
00:10[~]encode is currently listening to the soothing sounds of a keyboard and about 10 fans
00:10|-|Newsome [~sorenson@216-190-206-130.customer.csolutions.net] has quit [Quit: Linux: Now with employee pricing!]
00:10<taupehat>we've got an npr station here that has 3 program streams
00:10<taupehat>it's pretty kickass
00:10<taupehat>ijpr.org
00:10<fo0bar>mikegrb: go upgrade finnix on host11, he told me it was ok for you to do so
00:11<fo0bar>also, he told me to tell you to give me an extra 10GB on my host16 linode
00:11<fo0bar>and a pony
00:11<encode>and to give me another 500GB of transfer on my linode
00:11<encode>for free
00:12<@mikegrb>k
00:12<encode>kthxbi
00:40<psykoyiko>mikegrb: also can you please spin some gold for rapunzel?
00:40<@mikegrb>k
00:42<taupehat>OOF!
00:43<cow>so whats up with this xen transition
00:43<cow>are all hosts moving to it, or just new ones, or...?
00:44<@mikegrb>combination of both
00:44<@mikegrb>though people will be able to elect to remain with uml
00:44<taupehat>mikegrb: that's hard to parse...
00:48<cow>perfect
00:48<cow>i tried the xen beta way back... i remember not being able to get centos3.1 to run on it, and thats what my node is running
00:49<cow>i'd have to redo the whole box if i wanted to migrate... that'd take some time
00:50<@mikegrb>if I remember correctly the issue was related to centos needing the disk to be read only at boot and was resolved
00:50<@mikegrb>caker would of course know more
00:51<taupehat>how's debian do with xen? =]
00:56<psykoyiko>Xen transition?!
00:56<taupehat>=]
00:56<taupehat>mikegrb: does that mean we all get 2 gigs of ram now?
00:58<@mikegrb>you can have 2 gigs of swap if you'd like
00:58<taupehat>probably use it, too =[
01:01|-|spr [~spr@c-24-10-236-93.hsd1.ut.comcast.net] has quit [Quit: Spoon!]
01:23<fo0bar>taupehat: debain does rather well. the xen demo cd defaults to booting debian, and has it as a guest option
01:24<taupehat>cool
01:24<taupehat>I figured it would be
01:24<taupehat>SuSE's support for xen is startlingly good
01:24<@mikegrb>debian doesn't do anything weirdly
01:25<taupehat>but that's a desktop OS
01:25<@mikegrb>s/OS/distribution/
01:25<taupehat>nah
01:25<@mikegrb>suse isn't any sort of os
01:25<taupehat>I'd go so far and suggest that SuSE is almost a fork of linux
01:25<taupehat>their kernel is so divergent from kernel.org stock as to be almost unrecognizable
01:25<taupehat>well, ok, maybe that's putting it a little too strongly
01:25<@mikegrb>as are most distributions
01:25<fo0bar>eww
01:25<taupehat>but it's way different =]
01:26<taupehat>nonetheless, I like it a lot for desktop use
01:26<@mikegrb>so is red hats
01:26<fo0bar>mikegrb: fedora is better than RHL was in that respect, they seem to have less patches and updates from kernel.org more often
01:27<taupehat>cool
01:27<efudd>just played a game of 14.1 continuous (straight pool) with my friend who is two skill levels above me. he was ahead by ~32 balls and i ended up winning by 19.
01:27<efudd>race to 150.
01:27<taupehat>I pretty much gave up on redhat entirely with 8.2 (and bluecurve)
01:27<fo0bar>debian is probably the best... it includes patch, but you can always take a debian kernel's .config and run oldconfig against vanilla
01:27<fo0bar>taupehat: there was no rhl 8.2
01:27<taupehat>uhh
01:27<taupehat>sure there was?
01:28<fo0bar>7.2, 7.3, 8.0, 9, fedora
01:28<taupehat>http://www.google.com/search?q=redhat+8.2
01:28<@mikegrb>heh
01:28<taupehat>I used 7.x, 8.0, then 8.2 made me go WTF!
01:28[~]mikegrb stumbled across some red hat 6.0 manuals yesterday
01:28<taupehat>nice
01:28<@mikegrb>I've got some older mandrake manuals somewhere as well
01:29<taupehat>that's right, bluecurve came out with RHL 8.0
01:29<taupehat>man
01:29<taupehat>bluecurve was a great way to offend and generally piss off KDE users
01:29<@mikegrb>http://mail.gnome.org/archives/gnomemeeting-list/2003-June/msg00096.html
01:30<fo0bar>RHN has no mention of any releases between 8.0 and 9
01:30<taupehat>they wanted to forget it
01:30<taupehat>even so far as to deny it ever existed =]
01:30<fo0bar>are you sure you're not thinking of the severn betas?
01:31<taupehat>I clearly recall downloading a set of ISOs for 8.2
01:31<taupehat>and installing them
01:31<fo0bar>from Bob's House of Red Hat
01:31<taupehat>heh
01:31<fo0bar>in that shady alley
01:31<taupehat>ergh
01:32[~]taupehat took the stupid pills again
01:32<taupehat>was thinking SuSE 8.2
01:32<fo0bar>YOU LOSE
01:32<fo0bar>:)
01:32<taupehat>heh
01:33<taupehat>oh well
01:33<taupehat>anyhow
01:33<taupehat>redhad < SuSE for desktop linux
01:33<taupehat>bluecurve < dogpoo
01:33<fo0bar>now, if you really want to bash on crappy red hat releases (that actually existed), try 7.0 and 7.1
01:33[~]fo0bar shudders
01:33<taupehat>hrm
01:33<taupehat>those were the easier of them for me
01:34<taupehat>in terms of actually working without a lot of kernel-fighting
01:34<taupehat>anyhow
01:34<taupehat>I'm very, very happy with debian for my servers...
01:35<taupehat>and SuSE is better than any other desktop that I've seen (after years of distro-whoring)
01:35<taupehat>so it looks like I have a combo that works4me =]
01:36<fo0bar>also, today I installed FC4 on a couple servers for another department (my department is all debian), and the damn thing would not start a graphical installation
01:36<fo0bar>I dunno, maybe a Rage XL card is "too hardcore" or something
01:36<fo0bar>I had to use VNC installation mode
01:36<taupehat>haha
01:36<taupehat>sad, very ad
01:36<taupehat>sad*
01:37<fo0bar>I keep telling them "look, at the very least, install CentOS. neither CentOS nor Fedora has official (IE paid) support, but at least CentOS won't go out of update support after 1.5 years"
01:38<@mikegrb>vnc installation?
01:38<@mikegrb>wtf
01:38<fo0bar>mikegrb: "linux vnc vncclient=1.2.3.4:5500" <-- then all you have to do is start the listening server on your workstation
01:39[~][|^__^|] installates mikegrb's vnc
01:39<@mikegrb>they don't have tty installs?
01:39<fo0bar>mikegrb: they do, but you can't do LVM partitioning through it :(
01:39<taupehat>fo0bar: does redhat still have Linus Torvalds' voice in sndconfig?
01:39<[|^__^|]>Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.
01:40<fo0bar>*shrug* I haven't done a "workstaion install" in about 3 years
01:40<taupehat>oh
01:40<[|^__^|]>Hate me because I murdered your family.
01:40<[|^__^|]>That's a much better reason
01:40<taupehat>I drag that wav out when needed...
01:40<taupehat>"Hello, this is Linus Torvalds, and I prounounce Linux... Linux."
01:40<fo0bar>but I seem to remember RHL9 having this multi-channel guitar thing as a test sound
01:40<taupehat>cracks me up to listen to
01:40<efudd>LEENUX
01:40<taupehat>yep
01:40<efudd>LEENUS
01:40<efudd>LEENUX
01:41<taupehat>they have both
01:41<[|^__^|]>LEENOOKS
01:41<efudd>not LIGHNUX you assholes!
01:41<taupehat>leyenucks
01:41<efudd>LIENUX=wrong.
01:41<[|^__^|]>however, nowadays he pronounces it "linnucks"
01:41<@mikegrb>ja
01:41<fo0bar>(rhymes with "finnix")
01:41<efudd>best friend insists it is "lienucks".. it's to the point where i just say leenux and he sais lienux and we ignore each other.
01:41<[|^__^|]>with the 'i' as in "it"
01:41<taupehat>the guy who runs the computer parts wholesaler prounounces it wrong, and I convinced his son to play that wav over the PA system one day at the right moment - was hilarious.
01:41<efudd>Yeah. I say linnucks.
01:42[~]mikegrb knows someone who says lienux
01:42<@mikegrb>but he pays me so I'll shudup
01:42[~]mikegrb runs away
01:42<efudd>I correct my friend with "linnucks" and he corrects me with "lienucks"
01:42<[|^__^|]>I morph the 'i' based on the part of speech
01:42<fo0bar>mikegrb lies to nux
01:42<efudd>sometimes i just call it tomatoe.
01:42<efudd>s/oe/o/
01:42<[|^__^|]>toemotto
01:42<taupehat>efudd: your last name Quayle?
01:43<efudd>I invented the internet; you do the math.
01:43<efudd>hrm. firefox just told me that Windows media player performed an illegal operation. i wonder if that was the .wmv hax0r attempt.
01:43[~]efudd starts vscan.
01:44<fo0bar>efudd: that's wmf, not wmv
01:44<fo0bar>windows metafile
01:44<efudd>Oh.
01:44<efudd>Hmmm.
01:44<taupehat>http://kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/SillySounds/english.au
01:44<efudd>ha; this xp laptop has been running since 10/27/2005.
01:44<@mikegrb>http://groups.google.com/group/alt.sysadmin.recovery/msg/f054f6e1554cded7 <--awesome
01:45<[|^__^|]>>I think they call it a "spamming tree". Maybe the big iron switches saw
01:45<[|^__^|]>>its MAC address, decided it was a god, and started worshipping it.
01:45<[|^__^|]>hahahahahaa
01:45<fo0bar>wget -O - http://kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/SillySounds/english.au > /dev/dsp <-- on the router :)
01:45<efudd>nice.
01:45<fo0bar>(router is a headless laptop whose motherboard keeps frying video daughterboards)
01:45<taupehat>heh
01:46<@mikegrb>[|^__^|]: the initial post was nice too but that one there neatly somes up the jist of the thread
01:46<fo0bar>but I like routing audio through it for laffs
01:46<efudd>afk.
01:46<fo0bar>the asterisk server is also on it, so I play voicemails through it as well :)
01:46<taupehat>mikegrb: I had a lady do that with an ethernet cable at work
01:46<taupehat>so funny
01:46<taupehat>we had STP setup on the LAN overall so it didn't thrash anything but that one switch
01:46<[|^__^|]>taupehat: what, just patch two wall sockets together?
01:47<taupehat>yeah
01:47<taupehat>she didn't know where to plug the extra cable in so found the nearest jack that fit
01:47<[|^__^|]>haha
01:47<taupehat>that's what I said
01:47<[|^__^|]>so did she hax0r your g1bz0n?
01:47<fo0bar>ha ha "spamming tree"
01:47<[|^__^|]>fo0bar: I KNOW!
01:48<taupehat>her password was sex

01:50<fo0bar>mikegrb: dude, I want your 8.2
01:50<taupehat>haha
01:50<[|^__^|]>taupehat: those are all over west oakland yard
01:50<taupehat>shaddup fo0bar
01:51<taupehat>[|^__^|]: this one's in a field in southern oregon
01:51<fo0bar>taupehat: hey, mikegrb was the one who continued the joke (you did see the url right?)
01:51<taupehat>yeah I see it
01:51<taupehat>it'll probably be 396 megs of GNAAGNAAGNAA all on one single line
01:51<@mikegrb>[|^__^|]: I can confirm they were playing cards, I can not confirm it being bridge
01:52<@mikegrb>[|^__^|]: I didn't see them at first, mrs mikegrb pointed them out as they made up the train
01:53<@mikegrb>[|^__^|]: a derailment happened about 15 ft from where that photo was taken about 3 weeks ago
01:53<@mikegrb>[|^__^|]: I missed it :<
01:53<@mikegrb><mikegrb> Can I go watch the trains?
01:53<taupehat>god
01:53<@mikegrb><mrsmikegrb> Sure if you take lilgrb with you
01:53<@mikegrb><mikegrb> never mind
01:53<taupehat>come over here if you want to watch the trains
01:53<taupehat>they're hard to ignore
01:54<taupehat>about 30 feet from here
01:54<@mikegrb>next night I'm there and they were cleaning up
01:54<psykoyiko>mikegrb: how old is lilgrb now?
01:54<@mikegrb>it's a 15 minute drive from here and happened about an hour after I would have left home
01:54<@mikegrb>16 months
01:54<@mikegrb>15
01:54<@mikegrb>somewhere in there
01:54<taupehat>eh
01:54<psykoyiko>cool.
01:54<taupehat>mikegrb: enjoy that time
01:55<@mikegrb>http://thegrebs.com/~michael/treo/cat/Photo_121505_002.jpg <-- psykoyiko
01:55<taupehat>you know that whole thing about "terrible twos?" It's utter male bovine fecal matter. Three is much tougher. I'd redo two any day, even with poopy diapers.
01:55<taupehat>hehe
01:55<taupehat>kitty!
01:55<psykoyiko>that is excellent.

08:09<jekil>host 21
08:09<jekil>is very very slow in the last 3 weeks
08:10<Dreamr3>how do you get those #s?
08:10<jekil>so sorry but this is my last month with lindoe
08:10<jekil>command w
08:11<Dreamr3>command w?
08:11<Dreamr3>hmmm
08:11<Dreamr3>i can't get to lish on host22
08:11<Dreamr3>but my linode is working
08:11<Dreamr3>weird
08:12<Dreamr3>not my day
08:14<Dreamr3>where is the staff?
08:14<Dreamr3>jekil: is host 21 that bad?
08:15<jekil>yes
08:15<Dreamr3>how do you get those load #s?
08:15<Dreamr3>with a bunch of linodes running those load #s might be normal
08:16<Dreamr3>my linode is slow sometimes, but i'm pushing RAm limits
08:16<Dreamr3>need more
08:16<Dreamr3>or to change something
08:16<Dreamr3>other than that great with few exceptions
08:16<Dreamr3>you arne't over extending your memory are you?
08:18<jekil>in the last weeks i have shutdown a lot of deamons to have more free ram
08:18<jekil>but the machine is always slow
08:22<Dreamr3>wll
08:22<Dreamr3>maybe people just weren't using their boxes before
08:22<Dreamr3>what plan are you on?
08:22<Dreamr3>if it's an 80 you're only guaranteed 100mhz
08:23<Dreamr3>of course it should be more, but doesn't have to be
08:23<Dreamr3>define "slow"

08:29<jekil>my plan is 80 and worked GREAT for a lot of months, now with LESS services the machine is slow
08:29<jekil>now, if he worked for 6 months, why now is slow?
08:29<jekil>so sorry but this is my last month with linode
08:33<@mikegrb>lolz
08:33<Dreamr3>lol
08:33<Dreamr3>jekil: what does "slow" mean
08:33<Dreamr3>jekil: what is slow about it
08:33<Dreamr3>mikegrb: i can't log into lish on host22
08:33<Dreamr3>mikegrb: and when i boot 2.6 eth0 is MIA
08:36<jekil>Dreamr3: WTF slow means tha amount of load that I have pasted
08:37<Dreamr3>jekil: is that your linode? or the host? i'm still not sure how you got that
08:37<Dreamr3>jekil: and like i said... if there are a lot of linodes that load might be quite normals
08:37<Dreamr3>1 per linode would be considered normal louad i believe
08:38<Dreamr3>jekil: no need to curse
08:38<jekil>WTF, i said two times, this is my linode, output of w, you read? or only type?
08:42<Dreamr3>um
08:42<Dreamr3>i get you now
08:42<Dreamr3>that's a problem with your linode dude
08:42<JasonF>jekil: I'd bet you hit the I/O limiter
08:42<Dreamr3>not the linode service
08:42<JasonF>you have a runaway process swap-thrashing
08:43<JasonF>or something like that

08:44<jekil>Dreamr3: dude it's you
08:44<Dreamr3>jekil: and i repeat, no reason to cuss
08:44<jekil>my setup works for 6 months with no problem
08:44<Dreamr3>jekil: you have a runaway process or severay
08:44<Dreamr3>jekil: maybe you got hacked
08:44<JasonF>jekil: what do you mean by "it's you" ... me nor Dreamr3 are Linode staff
08:44<jekil>hacked?! rotlf
08:44<@mikegrb>lolz
08:44<Dreamr3>lol
08:44<Dreamr3>too funny
08:44<JasonF>jekil: it's happened before to people who have had similar problems
08:44<Dreamr3>jekil: that load means something is deadly wrong with your box
08:45<Dreamr3>it'll be sad to see you leave over something that isn't the services fault
08:45<Dreamr3>and you may just run into elsewhere
08:45<jekil>JasonF: all what you want, but sure that i am not hacked..
08:46<JasonF>jekil: okay, will you run the commands I gave?
08:46<JasonF>cat /proc/io_status
08:46<JasonF>uptime
08:46<JasonF>and paste in the output

08:47<jekil>http://rafb.net/paste/results/l4rRvx67.html
08:48<JasonF>io_tokens=995
08:48<JasonF>that means you've hit the io limiter
08:48<JasonF>which means you have some process hammering the harddisk
08:48<JasonF>I'd help you find out which one, but I have to go to my hockey game now
08:48<JasonF>g/l
08:49<Dreamr3>wow
08:49<Dreamr3>yep
08:49<Dreamr3>any linode would be slow with that much rate limiting
08:49<Dreamr3>you should file a ticket

09:38<edasque>hey guys. Once you get confirmation of your linode order, how long does it take for them to check it and assign you a node ?
09:43<warewolf>edasque: not long, although it is a manual process.
09:44<warewolf>edasque: they get an email when people sign up
09:44<warewolf>edasque: the linode staff here are mikegrb and caker
09:44<edasque>so if I did it yesterday morning, it's normal I haven't received it yet, right /
09:44<warewolf>if it is a pressing matter, I believe you can email support@linode.com
09:45<warewolf>or do like everyone else, and post on the forums at www.linode.com/forums
09:45<warewolf>there's an "activation thread" I believe

16:34<marc_in_lux>good evening
16:35<encode>hi
16:35<marc_in_lux>is there a way to disable password ssh access to lish?
16:36<[|^__^|]>that was my question when I first signed on
16:36<[|^__^|]>I lock down everything to opie and ssh key-auth, and it's kind of unnerving that lish is accessible with a password that the management pages won't even allow to have non-alpha characters
16:37<marc_in_lux>yep
16:37<[|^__^|]>or I guess alnum
16:37<marc_in_lux>and...?
16:37<[|^__^|]>I got no answer, but things may have improved since.
16:39<marc_in_lux>other question... did anybody manage to make fuse work? I'm stuck...

16:45<@mikegrb>marc_in_lux: could do it manually (disable lish password)
16:46<marc_in_lux>mikegrb, how can I do that?
16:46<@mikegrb>we could do it for you, sorry, wan't very clear
16:47<marc_in_lux>ah, ok. Should I put in a ticket for that?

16:52<@mikegrb>give it a shot
16:53<marc_in_lux>well, actually I'm still trying to get out... ctrl-c doesn't seem to work
16:53<@mikegrb>are you viewing your console? if so ^A and then D
16:53<marc_in_lux>yes, it's screen.. .sorry
16:55<marc_in_lux>wonderful - works like advertised
16:56<marc_in_lux>thanks, mikegrb
16:56<marc_in_lux>[|^__^|], you know what to do :-)
16:56<@mikegrb>I'll talk to caker about making it an option on the website
16:57<[|^__^|]>yeah
16:57<@mikegrb>marc_in_lux: note, if you change your password on the website, password auth to lish will be re-enabled
16:57<@mikegrb>marc_in_lux: so you'll need to have us disable it again
16:58<marc_in_lux>ok... so if my password is compromised, an attacker would still gain access.
16:58<marc_in_lux>well.. anyways, he would :-)
16:59<@mikegrb>yeah
17:00<[|^__^|]>what would, of course, rock the kasbah is if someone used the javurscript otp-md5 stuff used on http://zork.net/ssh/ to do a hidden challenge-response login system for linode

17:02<[|^__^|]>the ssh client is java
17:03<marc_in_lux>ah, ok
17:03<[|^__^|]>and doesn't work in *my* browser either
17:03<marc_in_lux>too quick
17:03<[|^__^|]>but the otp calculator is javascript
17:03<[|^__^|]>and works everywhere I've needed it
17:03<marc_in_lux>I like the authentication my homebanking does...
17:03<womble>Are you a criminal? ( ) Yes ( ) No
17:03<marc_in_lux>username, password plus 2 digits out of a security code
17:03<marc_in_lux>that you have on a card.
17:04<[|^__^|]>yeah
17:04<[|^__^|]>I used to work at VA Linux
17:04<marc_in_lux>not as safe as rolling pw's, but still...
17:04<[|^__^|]>and the sysadmin there got all opie
17:04<[|^__^|]>and insisted that nobody run otp-md5 on any net-connected machines because they can be hacked
17:04<[|^__^|]>so everyone got palm pilots, which i refuse to use on licensing grounds
17:04<marc_in_lux>what is opie... apart from that pda system?
17:04<[|^__^|]>so I printed out a list of 500 passphrases and kept it folded in my passport
17:04<[|^__^|]>one-time passwords in everything
17:05<[|^__^|]>pam module for otp
17:05<[|^__^|]>anyway, so marc got all furious
17:05<[|^__^|]>because someone might *find* this piece of paper and connect it to my account at VA
17:05<[|^__^|]>which was nonsense on the face of it
17:05<[|^__^|]>but still much less likely than a pilot getting hacked by his network bogeymen during syncup
17:06<[|^__^|]>of course, people took the opportunity to argue that since PalmOS is a *bad* proprietary OS on *chips*, it was therefore somehow not a proprietary operating system
17:06<marc_in_lux>:-)
17:06<[|^__^|]>"It's *firmware*!"
17:07<marc_in_lux>just looking up opie, it looks nice :-)
17:07<[|^__^|]>oh yes thank you for that wonderful distinction without a difference
17:07<marc_in_lux>ok, maybe I'm not strong enough... but palms work quite nicely for their task. Have me pay twice the price for a comparable open system, and I'd gladly buy
17:08<marc_in_lux>firmware in my toyota is proprietary, too...
17:08<[|^__^|]>yes yes, there are always technical arguments for using proprietary software
17:08<[|^__^|]>yes, well, I despise automobiles for other reasons
17:08<[|^__^|]>but the point is that I don't care if there's a chip in my food processor with code on it
17:09<[|^__^|]>but a palm pilot is a generally useful computing device that loads and unloads programs etc etc
17:09<marc_in_lux>don't consider my palm that. It's a calender, todolist and address book
17:09<[|^__^|]>I'll consider it whatever I like. Don't tell me what not to consider.
17:10<@mikegrb>marc_in_lux: for my bank, if you login from home computer with a cookie, you get a little image and phrase that you specify ahead of time to prove that they really are your bank, and then you sign in with password
17:10<marc_in_lux>no hard feelings...
17:10<[|^__^|]>haha
17:10<@mikegrb>marc_in_lux: if you aren't at home, you type your username and random crap into the password box, then it shows you one of 6 questions you picked from a possible 30 or so

18:22<taupehat>cool
18:23<Beirdo>weekly backups are good, mmkay? :)
18:23<taupehat>what I get more often is apt-get upgrade on a mailserver followed immediately by the sound of the phone ringing
18:23<Beirdo>heheheh
18:23<Beirdo>yeah, that sucks

18:25<taupehat>my other favorite BOFH trick is when I find a machine trying really hard to update its spyware, and I find that the computer has a name like '9824HF' and is joined to 'Workgroup' - rather than spending hours trying to find the machine physically, I simply use mac address matching to drop it from the gateway and wate for the phone to ring =]
18:25<taupehat>then it finds me
18:25<Beirdo>hehe, that can work
18:25<taupehat>works really well
18:26<Beirdo>and if there's no call, then someone got owned and the call will come later
18:26<taupehat>yep
18:26<Beirdo>meanwhile it won't be messing with your internet bandwidth
18:26<Beirdo>all is good
18:26<taupehat>I was using squid to do the dropping simply because it's easier, but I found that people call faster when they can't get email or connect to their homedir on the server

18:31<Beirdo>won't work
18:31<Beirdo>I run apache2
18:31<Beirdo> :)
18:32<taupehat>which do you think has a smaller memory footprint assuming the need to support php and mysql? apache or apache2?
18:32<Beirdo>hmm, I dunno
18:32<Beirdo>they are both rather hoggish :)
18:32<taupehat>since I'm on an L80, that matters.
18:33<Beirdo>yeah, so am I. I use apache2
18:33<Beirdo>takes a bit of tweaking
18:33<taupehat>frankly, the main reason I haven't upgraded is laziness
18:33<Beirdo>I'm hungry again
18:33<taupehat>and also I run mod_msff which works a lot better on apache1
18:34<Beirdo>well, maybe apache1 is your best friend :)
18:34<taupehat>yep

19:35<@mikegrb>Can0beans: yes, though not live
19:36<warewolf>I stand corrected
19:36<Can0beans>mikegrb, can you explain?
19:36<Can0beans>or provide a link where I can read?
19:36<@mikegrb>you need to shutdown or have the image unmounted to make a duplicate
19:36<Can0beans>you need the disk space in the account then?

19:38<Can0beans>ok
19:39<Can0beans>what kind of uptime do your hosts typically have?
19:39<@mikegrb>http://ichiri.com/howtolinode/ <-- has some screenshots of the member's site
19:39<@mikegrb>it varies, some hosts are up around 600 days
19:39<@mikegrb>some are shorter, we've been having problems with a cpu/kernel bug that effects a few hosts but that should go away with the move to xen
19:40<Can0beans>which will happen when?
19:40<@mikegrb>first quarter 2006
19:41<Can0beans>how easy is it to move an image from UML to Xen?
19:42<Can0beans>how big of an operation will that be?
19:42<Can0beans>or will UML accounts stay UML?
19:42[~]taupehat notices that it is currently first quarter 2006
19:42<@mikegrb>it will be a matter of shutting down via the website, clicking a migrate button, and then clicking boot

22:21<@mikegrb>Dear Sir/Madam
22:21<@mikegrb>Thank you for having contact with us by mail.
22:21<@mikegrb>We tell you that we have found the person who was doubtful about the SPAM,
22:21<@mikegrb>and already had contact with him.
22:21<@mikegrb>Then we told him to do something to stop the incident.
22:21<@mikegrb>engrish++
22:24<encode>:)
22:26<Beirdo>better than sending you an email in Chinese :)
22:27<@mikegrb>they do
22:27<Beirdo>heh
22:27<Beirdo>engrish is fun though

22:27<@mikegrb>just got about 10 in french with no english translation
22:28<Beirdo>heh... at least French is fairly babelfish-able
22:28<Beirdo>if you want to bother
22:28<@mikegrb>same as chinese
22:28<Beirdo>really? I didn't remember seeing it there.
22:29<Beirdo>ah well, my memory sucks :)
22:29[~]mikegrb shrugs, have used google's translation service since it came out
22:29<@mikegrb>seems to work much better
